How to Take Your Surf Fishing Experience to the Next Level

Standing on the shoreline, surrounded by an expansive blend of fishing opportunities, the inquisitive angler in you ponders – should you steer your boat to the left or to right?

How about you park it on the bayside, and head straight for the drylands?

Yes, the beach.

And don’t undermine the offerings of the shallow saltwater; there, awaits a contrasting catch in the brine, ready to reward every surf-caster for their share of efforts.

Ah, so the previous ‘disappointing’ surf fishing experiencing is still fresh in your memory?

Give it another shot and this time, based on our recommendations; make your next surf fishing adventure a worthwhile addition to your already rich fishing Rolodex.

Tip #1: Know the territory

Surf fishing conditions vary from one shore to another. Before you set foot in the reduced waves, it’s vital you know in advance what you can expect from the tossed cast. A brief survey of the site should serve you well, and if you can get some insight from the locals, that would great.

Tip #2: Keep a keen eye on the surf

Read the tide and current pattern. It will provide you with a wealth of information about which spots to target when placing your bait. Look in particular for areas where smoother, flatter seas dominate.

Tip #3: While you are at it, don’t ignore the weather

Wind speed and atmospheric pressure dictate where fish are likelier to venture and at what times. A calm sea implies that you are more likely to find them in deep waters during daylight and can expect their return to the shore once the sun starts setting into the dusk. On the other hand, strong winds at the shore is most likely a good sign.

Tip #4: Use real bait

Artificial lures are best if you are surf-casting for the first time, but since you are not — you are here to improve on your previous experiences and target a valuable catch — we would suggest using real baits. Fresh shrimp, as such, would be an ideal choice.

Tip #5: Go for the accuracy rather than the distance

Look, I can break all national records of casting – I can cast at great distances…

All too often, surf casters adopt this attitude, looking to prove a point to their accompanying buds. Yes, casting long has its benefits but for that:

  • You need to have a super technique
  • You need to be physically strong
  • You need to be using a high-quality casting gear

Since not everyone is resourced or capable enough in all these three departments, it’s better to go for accuracy. How can you achieve accuracy? By following surf fishing tips 1, 2 and 3.

And well, that’s pretty much it. Next time you go surf fishing, follow these tips and we assure you that by the end of the day, you will have plenty of fresh seafood to grill.

Good luck!

Planning A Day Hike? Here Are Some Tips For Safe and Fun Travels

If you are new to hiking, it won’t be long before you discover why people love hiking so much.

Hiking trails cover nature’s most beautiful and captivating spots.

However, hiking demands considerable physical stamina and strength. You will be carrying your supply-laden backpack for several hours on tough and steep terrains. This is why it is important to plan appropriately and be prepared for anything that you might face during your trip.

Safety gear

There are a few items that all hikers should have in order to deal with emergencies. They include a first-aid kit, pocket knife, compass, headlamp and a multi-tool. Keep a trail map even if you are using a GPS, as you may never know when your phone’s battery may die.

If the safety items are too heavy, it will be wiser to divide all the things among the whole group.

If the trail is too tough, or the weather is known to be quite unpredictable, be prepared to spend the night even if you’re planning a day hike.

Weather Forecast

Always be updated with the weather forecasts in the area. It doesn’t take long for the weather to change. It may be very sunny when you are at the bottom, but stormy when you get to the top.

If you’ve come to a different city or country for hiking, spend a couple of days getting used to the weather conditions before heading out for your excursion.

Talk to locals and experienced hikers

Joining a local guide can turn a good experience into a great experience. You will not have to worry about your safety. However, if you like being a lone ranger, always try to learn as much as possible about the mountains you are looking to climb.

Talk to the locals and hikers who have done hiking on those mountains before. Learn about the weather, water sources, wildlife and rough paths.

Invest in hiking gear

Invest in proper hiking gear, as it will play a crucial in your overall experience. In emergencies, your hiking gear can also prove to be life-saving.

No two hiking gears are the same; much of it depends on the area and type of hiking you are looking to do. However, a lightweight backpack is something you’ll always need, regardless of the weather or the area.

It is important not to cut corners and spend money on low-end and sub-par gear. If you really want a fun and safe trip, hiking gear is well-worth investing in.
